PassivSystems and Parsons Brinckerhoff identify 40% savings

While the use of district heat networks is well established in some countries, they currently supply just 2% of the UK’s total heat demand. Whilst this is a small contribution at present, an Energy Technologies Institute (ETI) forecast suggests that decentralised heat networks could cost-effectively supply over 40% of the UK’s peak space heat capacity needs by 2050. However, fulfilling this potential means addressing some of the fundamental issues that have troubled district heating schemes in the past.
